WHAT'S THE MEANING?
An integrated development environment, or IDE, is a software that compiles the necessary tools used by developers for writing and testing software. IDEs usually have a code editor, compiler, interpreter, and a debugger, which are all accessible through a single graphical user interface. The first IDE was a part of the Dartmouth Time Sharing System and was command-based, unlike the current versions of IDEs where developers see menu-type of capabilities and options. IDEs like IntelliJ IDEA and Visual Studio Code are not coding software but are tools to help developers manage their work.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Python, the general-purpose programming language, was named after a 1970s British surreal comedy group? Guido Van Rossum said in a tutorial that the language he invented was named after Monty Python, the British comedy group that first aired on BBC. He also said that references to Python's skits are encouraged when using the language like he did when he used the words "spam and eggs" in the program instead of the more accepted terms "foo and bar". Python is the fourth most highly rated programming language according to the TIOBE index as of June, since it has a 5.76% rating, just three percent below third-placer C++, but it is far away from C (14.94%) and Java (15.37%).
